HomeCare FAQs









How often will I be visited?
A nurse or therapist will conduct an initial assessment of your needs and will work with you and your physician to determine what services are right for you and how often you will be visited.






How do I arrange services for after a hospital stay?
Your doctor or a hospital discharge planner will give you a list of homecare providers and discuss your needs with you.

You have the right to choose the home health agency you want.

When you choose MaineGeneral, the discharge planner will call us to arrange for services to start when you return home, according to your doctor's orders.

If needed, we will visit you in the hospital before you are discharged to ensure everything is ready for your care at home.






How do I decide which provider to use?
The National Association for HomeCare recommends doing some research ahead of time and asking some important questions.

At MaineGeneral HomeCare Services, we've answered these questions and are proud of the services we offer. If you would like more information about our services, please call (207) 861-3457 or toll-free at (800) 670-6959.
